American Shithole #26 — A Remarkable, Unremarkable Day

Imagine you’re standing in the middle of a busy airport. Passengers crowd past you in every direction. Looking up at the arrivals and departures; all flights are delayed.  Suddenly, the entire board changes — rows and columns of numbers and letters flip with the familiar clickety-clack, clickety-clack of the old, analog displays — revealing only destinations on your bucket list, as the throngs of weary travelers part before you like the Red Sea.

That’s how I felt today.

I recently read an article that posited that it is our expectations that often have more to do with the results of our lives than the strategies we employ to get those results.

In other words, according to this particular psychological journal, if we expect good results we are more likely to achieve good results.  It is perilously close to the ridiculous concept behind The Secret - wish real hard for money or a blow job or tickets to a sold out concert and it will magically happen for you.
